Trade Defence Policy

What are trade defence instruments?

One of the essential roles/missions/duties of the General Directorate of Imports is to defend domestic producers’ interests against imports which cause (serious) injury to the domestic industry. In this respect, General Directorate of Imports applies trade defence instruments (anti-dumping, anti-subsidy, anti-circumvention and safeguard) in compliance with WTO rules and national legislation, and follows up the enforcement of those measures.
